about

A bit of a folky jibe at modern celebrity culture disguised as a love song. Sort of soft words of warning to a narcissistic lover that fame can be fleeting and time spent in the celebrity limelight hollow. But when it's all over I'll be there to pick up the pieces.

lyrics

Flying high you can see it all
Looking down not afraid to fall
But the air is thin and you can’t breathe
So just come down and breathe with me

Such a lonely place to be
Smothered and warm or cold and free
Give it time and then you’ll see
Just come down and stay with me

I’ll stand up 10 feet tall
Promise I won’t let you fall
I’ll be waiting for the day to come
You can be my number one

Autumn come and the harvest fail
Once famous now no one can tell
November rain and no time to dwell
Nice and warm inside this shell

Photo flashes are oh so bright
They won’t keep you warm at night
In their glow you turn and take flight
So just come down be with me


I’ll stand up 10 feet tall
Promise I won’t let you fall
I’ll be waiting for the day to come
You can be my number one

I’ll stand up 10 feet tall
Promise I won’t let you fall
I’ll be waiting for the day to come
You can be my number one
